Special Issue "Environmental Decision Analysis for Nanoparticles"
A special issue of Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Interests: Nanotechnology; Environmental Science; occupational safety; nanoparticulate aerosols; environmental impact
In recent years, engineered nanoparticles have had a substantial impact on almost all scientific and technological fields. This growth is undoubtedly boosted by the amazing nature of matter at the nanoscale and its potential applications. Increasingly, the presence of nanomaterials in environmental compartments is a reality with interesting short- and long-term consequences. Fortunately, together with the development of nanotechnology, there is a growth in societal concern surrounding its impact in the workplace and on the environment. An array of materials, methodologies and models is being developed for a comprehensive risk assessment of engineered nanoparticles in different scenarios.
In this Special Issue, we are devoted to sketching the current state of the art in decision-making procedures for engineered nanoparticles in the context of the environment. We are looking for manuscripts encompassing multiple aspects of nanotechnology and its impact on diverse ecosystems, as well as exposure assessment and life cycle analysis. Novel scientific findings on the environmental impact of nanoparticles are welcomed, as well as perspectives on the future development of chemical engineering and environmental sciences.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
